    This table highlights the main features and differences between the two tumblers based on the information from the company websites at the time of publishing.

    Both tumblers are excellent at maintaining the temperature of your beverages, so you can't go wrong with either choice. The 18/8 stainless steel, double-wall vacuum construction is standard insulation on each, apparently Stanley use 90% recycled steel. Each brand uses BPA-free lids. Neither are leakproof, while they do minimize leakage, these are safe to transport in your car cup holder, not freely in your backpack. The YETI lid pushes into position with a rubber ring around the outer edge of the thick lid. The Stanley lid screws into place.

    The standout difference to us is the handle. Our YETI 14 oz mugs are super comfortable and we've had them for years, but the larger Stanley handle even has rubberized areas for increased grip and comfort which should certainly be considered with these bigger tumblers. 

    Also of note: The YETI lid is very thick, for hot beverages this is paramount for keeping it hot and we’ve confirmed with extensive hands-on use — it’ll stay hot for four hours, and be warm for a couple more.

    When deciding between the YETI Rambler 42 oz and the Stanley Quencher H2.0 40 oz, it's important to consider what matters most to you. If you're looking for a rugged and durable tumbler with a renowned brand name, the YETI might be your choice. However, if you prefer a tumbler with more color options, is more eco-friendly, and has a beefier handle, the Stanley Quencher could be the way to go.
